The 'perfect storm' for breathless journalism.
I can't wait for a frigid winter, which will of course be blamed on CO2, as 'change' is the new 'narrative'.
The best whipping boy ever invented. By anyone, for anything.
If CA had any responsible forest management, these fires aren't out of the ordinary. Yes it was blisteringly hot. But patterns change. A couple of years ago it was cool and rainy. Hope did that happen?? Didn't fit the 'narrative'! If anyone truly believes CO2 is the control point for any local climate, you also must believe there can only be monotonic increases in temperature, because THAT is what the greenhouse theory actually argues. But that horse is out of the barn, and all are jumping onboard a train that is exceedingly expensive and leads to nowhere. The earth is going to do what it is going to do. Watch when they blame the next earthquake on some human activity (a major one....not a water disposal well-induced one.)
I'm still betting on the sun and decreased solar output as the item that matters the most. Maybe that trend will persist and these true believers in the greenhouse will argue to start injecting CO2 into the atmosphere.
We shall all see, won't we??
